Thailand's national immigration chief Lt-Gen Sompong Chingduang attended a press conference flanked by heavily armed commandos to announce the arrest of a group of Indians and Nepalis in Pattaya.
 
Region 3 of his immigration men had been alerted by a member of the public that there was some illegal activity in the area with people on suspected overstay.
 
Seventeen were arrested.

Naew Na said this was part of policies to keep Thailand safe and sound; policies that come down from the top level of government and through the RTP. 
 
In a departure from their normal stories this report did not contain a number to ring to report foreigners.

heavily armed commandos

so they went after the Gurkha's ?

I thought perhaps their idea is to scare the sh!t out of any over-stayers?

They wouldn’t have had the best of times during lockdown so I hope they can be repatriated as soon as possible.

I thought there was no OVERSTAY during the emergency shut down ?

If visa/extension expired after March 26, 2020.

Yeah, if your permission to stay was expired previous to the Amnesty, then you are on overstay. 

The article mentions "illegal activity" by people "on suspected of overstay".

So they were up to no good of some kind, got reported and the cops found 17 were on overstay.

As for the Nepalese, their reputation has been somewhat exaggerated by the exploits of the Gurkhas (and Sherpas). I saw that first hand when I was in Croatia back in the winter of 92/93 and when I was working in Afghanistan and we had a lot of Nepalese employees. (My mechanic was Nepalese actually.)
Most of them are just ordinary, dedicated, hard working people. 

They aren't all supermen or lethal killers. 😄
